This Episode we’re introducing boosters to amplify your efforts on the battlefield.

So after you made the grind 90% harder from last yr, now you are giving us boosters .... for which we have to pay ?

So you caused the problem, and are selling the solution ?

 

 

10x 100% boosters for 1h are just enough for 1 prestige level, at most, realistically for the average dude ... about 0.5-0.6 prestige level.

So the 10x boosters per week accumulate to 2-2.5 prestige points extra for speeding up grinding.

 

In the meantime, for the low-low price of 2500 gold (1 month of subscription ... 8-9 euros), you can buy 0.5-0.6 prestige levell.

For the next 4 episodes, that means 10 000 gold (36 euros), for 2-2.5 prestige levels.

So after i grinded my [edited]off to get prestige 8 now you are introducing these boosters so everyone will be able to get prestige easier...So much wasted time and effort...and most important nerves.I would be on prestige 16 by now if these were introduced before.This is already 10th time that WG is screwing me over by implementing stuff for money so it makes it easier to others.What's next? Emil 1951 is gonna be on sale?

Plus on top of that it's been 3-3.5 months since equipment and consumables discount.Iv'e wasted 2100 foods ( had 300 for each nation except polish ) and now i feel punished for even playing the game.

Even bought black dog for frontline to make grind more enjoyable but don't have equipment on it.Have like 20 tanks without equipment and i can't even play them.

This might be it for me.Haven't played in 10 days already since as i said feel punished paying 20k per game because of no consumable&equipment discounts.

If we don't get discount on equipment&consumables before frontline i am deleting game.

I have no words for how much you've ruined Frontline mode for me and many others by making the grind extremely long and boring.

And after you have changed it in this way, we should be happy that we will be able to pay you in order to cut the terrible grind in half?

Thank you WG for this awesome opportunity...,but I prefer to simply not get the tanks.

I must be a hippie, I'm just glad to be able to do the 2 remaining prestige levels twice as fast than the previous ones just by using the free reserves :mellow:

 

Even if I agree on the fact we could have farmed way less if these reserves were introduced earlier, or at least if we have know they would be introduced :(

At least the game counts if you started the battle with it active and not if it is till active when the battle ends.

It seems people will be divided into those who complain about making it too easy to grind and those who complain about relatively high price of reserves which makes catching up not as easy as expected.

I made some effort and tried hard to get generals/majors in every game so I am pleased with what I see a balanced approach. Players can easily get reserves in missions but not enough of them to get to top prestige and get AE Phase 1, the tank which should be awarded only to no-lifers. Apologies, I meant 'dedicated players' of course.

Well I'm actually fine with this, those reserves we get for playing are very easy to get

and I don't even think about buying more, 10 is good enough and I'm close

to getting Emil. The concept it self is "grindy" but I'm ok with it when I get some credits,

bonds and gold..

Don't get it, for me it all started/stopped with Nietzsche, he was more practical to understanding 20th century geopolitics. :P
